My first visit to Savannah was just a two-day weekend getaway. My final stop on the last day before leaving the city was the rooftop of a parking garage. From my vantage point, I watched a colorful sunset develop in the sky across the historic city. It was the best final moment I could have hoped to see.

Since then, I have returned to Savannah for two more weekend getaways. Each time, I travel around the city with a tour map in one hand and my camera in the other. I don’t walk very far without snapping a photo or two, sometimes three or more.

Savannah is a photographically gorgeous city. Lush trees, amazing architecture, and quirky attractions abound. Trying to pick out my favorite travel photos of Savannah was more difficult than just about any other place I’ve ever visited. But I did it, and here they are!

My favorite travel photos that show of the very best of Savannah, Georgia.

Factors Walk is just as historic as it is beautiful to explore.

Azalea bushes are common throughout Savannah; come in March and April to see them in full bloom.

Historic steps, streets, and buildings. There is a lot of history in Savannah.

Each of the historic squares in downtown Savannah has a different feature. The Armillary Sphere is the feature in Troup Square.

The Nathaniel Greene Monument at the center of Johnson Square also features a view of town hall in the distance.

The James Oglethorpe Statue in Chippewa Square is dedicated to the founder of Savannah.

The Johnny Mercer Statue greets visitors to Ellis Square.

In Orleans Square, this peaceful water fountain is surrounded by benches, inviting visitors to enjoy the view for a while.

Jones Street is considered one of the most beautiful residential streets in America. Azalea bushes line the street covered in the shade of massive oak trees. Porches are decorated more for curb appeal than actual use, but that just makes it pretty for pictures.

The American Prohibition Museum is the only museum in the country dedicated to that time period of no legal alcohol in the country.

The Old Savannah Cotton Exchange was once the most important building in the city. The Griffon Water Fountain in front of the building stands like a sentinel.

There are a lot of churches in Savannah like Independent Presbyterian Church.

The Cathedral of St. John the Baptist is one of the most gorgeous churches in the country, and certainly the prettiest in Savannah.

The towering steeples of the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist can be seen all across the city.

Bonaventure Cemetery is a gorgeous place to visit, if you don’t mind the tombstones. Statues, mausoleums, and azalea bushes are scattered throughout the historic cemetery.

Fort Pulaski National Monument is an exciting place to visit for history and a scenic walk. The fort took a pounding during the Civil War and the evidence is still present across from the water-filled moat.

The Tybee Light Station is a great place to visit on those gorgeous, sunny days. The view from the top is worth every step of the long climb.

Huc-a-Poos Bites & Booze is an interesting place to grab something to eat.

What happens when you put a group of colorful sheds together? You get a shopping center on Tybee Island!

The Georgia Queen cruises the Savannah River for lunch and dinner almost every day.

River Street is always a great place to enjoy an evening. Locals play live music, and other locals dance.

Locals love to decorate their porches, entrances, and windows. These boot planters were certainly a unique option.

The colorful sunset across the sky beyond Lutheran Church of the Ascension was a great way to end my very first visit to Savannah. I’ll have many more.

  1. I really remember those places because I’ve been to them all! I’ve been visiting Downtown Savannah Georgia for years now and thanks to, I really got to know about the place before my first visit in 2018! Now I make it a point to visit each year!

  2. I absolutely love the Savannah photo with the draping Spanish moss, American flag, and the southern home/porch. Great eye!

    1. Thank you, Claire! That has consistently been named one of the most beautiful streets in America – I love walking up and down the street capturing photos there.
